      BB mucked and won $0.12 ($0.08 net)

      Initial limper's stats: VP/PFR/AF/WTSD/hands 80/10/0.8/40/20
      BB's stats: VP/PFR/AF/WTSD/hands 22/11/4.0/33/27

      Is it worth completing with a hand like this in such a spot?

      Hello Avatars91,

      Shouldn't be a problem if the BB is rather tighter side. Also try not to overplay TP. :)

      Best Regards.

      What could our SB completing range look like against that shortstack and a tight BB? SCs, small PPs, broadways? Maybe even offsuited connectors?

      Whatever we expect to be either ahead with our hand or had great implied odds and also possible to hit big. It's only 2 cents to win a pot of 10 cents.

      Is it worth completing with hands that have good implied odds but that are not ahead of their ranges? E.g. small SCs and offsuited connectors? The limper's stack is too small and the BB has got a random hand that he is not likely to hit something with on the flop anyway.

      Well, once again depends how good you are postflop. :) If you ain't confident in your play and you ain't sure that you can play them profitable then rather don't.
